This mani is something new for me. I seldom leave half my fingers without any nail art at all. Then again, it is not often that I wear something elegant on my nails. I prefer rainbow and showy…and here, I have only skin tones.
I was going to entitle this “glitter and coffee” but my boyfriend thought my shades looked more like skintones (“really Eva, have you ever seen light pink coffee??”). So there we go.
This was inspired by one of my wonderful new pixiedusts from Zoya: Tomoko. She is a beautiful sparkly slightly gold champagne color. I have had trouble getting the full texture out of pixiedust before, so I applied very thin coats. I needed three, but they dried rather fast so it didn’t take long.
My accent nails were painted pale pink, then I added the chevron gradient by hand. After topcoat, I added Tomoko with a nail art brush. I LOVE the way this mani looks! I might have to try it with some of my other (numerous) textured polishes.
- Champagne textured: Zoya – Tomoko
- Pink: NYC – Prospect Park Bloom
- Nude: Wet n’ Wild – Private Viewing
- Brown: Zoya – Dea
- Dark brown: Zoya – Louise
What do you guys think? Should I try some more elegant manis? Or do some different colors with this design?
